Two hours late? You dont bite the hand that feeds you. Just shows how much fame can go to your head. Silly woman.

If a male performer had pulled down a woman's top, we'd likely be hearing about sexual harassment. I don't see why it's any different from a female performer. It's good the concert-goer didn't care and wasn't bothered, but I still don't think anyone has the right to decide on their own to undress others in public.I'd be punching someone's lights out if they tried that on me, celebrity or not. Madonna: tacky, lady, tacky.

In every country fools are never in short supply. Wow, paying for inconvinience, waiting 4 hrs. I thought only the Japanese were gaman tsuyoi.

Madonna is a old bag thinking shes still in the 80s, shes always been a tart, especially while touring, its no wonder she could never hold a steady relationship. Time for her to hang up her mic and retire to some old age harem for women.

"Fan Josephine Georgiou, a barista and part-time model, later told Brisbane’s Courier Mail newspaper that she was not upset by her breast being revealed". I am sure she was not bothered, why? nice bit of PR for her modelling career! You can see the modelling agency now, Aaar your the lady who had her top pulled down by Madge, that will sell magazines! come on in and take a seat. as for being late, sorry Madge, its inexcusable.

“Only I get to decide if I’m humiliated or not – why would people assume I am humiliated by my own breast, nipple or body?” she told the paper.

This is such an important line. Yes Madonna did a silly thing but to assume that nudity is something to be ashamed of is a societal problem in general. Maybe it was a little embarrassing for the fan but for others to jump on the band wagon and declare her humiliated is presumptuous.

Maybe they should open the doors two hours later after she gets there and have no prepaid tickets, but reservations only. Then she can get paid if they decide to attend, not the other way around.

And MaDUHna still got paid.

Actually, she was almost 3.5 hours late for her first Brisbane concert, and about 2.5 hours late for her second one.

It was sexual harassment to do that without permission and she is a minor. Looks like the laws in Australia have become conditional. Maybe you could use that next time you get a speeding ticket or write how some child molester should be let off the hook with no penalty. Its not the girls decision whether or not it was or wasn't illegal.

Is 17 a minor? Did she expose a minor in front of a crowd?

Just another wardrobe malfunction. ;)

The Girl was continuously pulling her dress up in the Video and , yes, it would be secual Harassment.

I think Madonna was also slightly sloshef during a recent concert.

The Japanese word 'darashinai' comes to mind with this never was singer.

Went to a Jefferson Starship performance years back in San Antonio and they were a no-show. The concert turned into a full scale riot. As a result, they were made to pay for the damage caused at the venue and the band earned a lifetime ban from playing in that city. . . .

Madona also 3 hours late on her 2 days show in Philippines, and many people get angry ... Now she was ban in Philippines. they called her, grandma's broken knees ....

“Exploiting young people, taking advantage of them and pulling a sexual stunt like that is NOT OK,” wrote Facebook user Pauline Ryeland.

Perhaps young people shouldn't be going to Madonna's shows. Everyone knows she's a nympho-freak and does these things. Should not be admitted without an adult, like a rater "R" movie.

She clealry took the P out of her aussie fans whom she had not seen for 23 years! Giving 'fashionably late' a whole new meaning.

Not a fan. Still, Madonna knows how to capture attention. The thing with the fan may have been staged.

Josephine Georgiou has a fantastic body:

I'm proud of the fact I attended a SLY and the Family Stone concert for which he famously failed to show up. Long Live Rock!

I went to a Damon Wayans stand up show which he didn't show up. To fill the time, the bartender went up and did the show.

Some of these stars seem to think they're beyond reproach...

The video of her pulling the young lady's dress down suggests it was nothing to be worried about. In fact, I watched it several times just to make sure.

I have been wondering why Madonna hasn't been booked in any hotel's entertainment centers in Vegas. Now I think it is because her behavior.

@thepersoniamnow & @scoobydoo. Agree with both of you. I'm surprised that the posts haven't kicked up a fuss about the girl's age. Perhaps it's because it's Madonna and controversy is nothing new when it comes to her. However, I can't help but think of the outrage if it were a female Japanese singer and a 17 year old Japanese fan.

“Exploiting young people, taking advantage of them and pulling a sexual stunt like that is NOT OK,”

Do we need to define "What is Moral Issue" when talking about Madonna? No.

I like a few of her songs like 'La Isla Bonita', Don't cry for me Argentina' and 'This used to be playground', for some time she put out some decent music.

Actually, she was almost 3.5 hours late for her first Brisbane concert, and about 2.5 hours late for her second one. she was probably out back banging all the aussie stage hands, the womans just a horny old tart, correction, filthy rich horny old tart.

Black sab, I viewed the link that you posted, your right she has got a nice body, as for her face, well, she might appeal to some guys but not me. I still believe it was a PR stunt.

@mrsynik. We don't say darashinai. Keep writing in English I believe you meant darashi ga nai. That do not apply to Madonna's behaviors.
